So as I was reviewing my postings... I realized I had forgotten to share an awesome morning experience I had a couple weeks ago. In reviewing I remembered that what had started as a good morning ended with me losing a Falcon when FC ordered warp to an outbound gate to engage a gang... without realizing said gate was bubbled. Both Falcons died, a Daredevil died, while the majority of ceptors and all Dramiels in our gang got out.
Needless to say I emo logged for the rest of the day.
But I had fun with said Falcon earlier in the day. So the story I shall share.
So I woke up April 28th, later in the morning. No work, happy day.
Decided to head down this pipe/dead end constellation that had lots of carebears in it. I threw some heavy pulse lasers on my Falcon (horribad, right?) and rolled down said pipe. I snooped around this area, which is populated by Vanguard and Spacemonkeys Alliance. I noticed some hauler traffic jumping through a gate... repeatedly. More than 1 hauler. In fact 4 were moving something somewhere.
I set up shop in UC3H on the 6GWE gate in Pure Blind. Watched Ittys and Badgers go out. First one that came back was an Iteron IV. Boom. Empty. Damn.
I had warped off gate after killing the Itty IV for fear of repercussion. Yet my directional stayed empty, and no bump in local. Wow.
With that kill I now knew that the product flow was out of system, and all the haulers on the way back in would be empty. I had also observed one of the haulers, an Itty V, was using an off gate warpin. He would warp to that spot, then down to the gate I was sitting at, and out. I was intrigued by this, and after the second time I headed towards the spot. He came back through and filled up again, warping to the spot a third time. he was only 50 off now (instead of 200) and I reset my bearing (which was very close to right on). After traveling the distance needed I stopped and waited.
After five minutes he came back through, warped off. I waited. Five minutes later I picked him up on scan... shortly after he landed. 5k off of me.
I decloaked, locked him up, pointed while switching to Imperial Navy Multis for max damage. It took over a minute for him to die, but die he did.
The Iteron V was loaded. No need for that plex now, I was set for another month or two. I grabbed as much as I could of the small expensive stuff and warped to a safe, jetting a can. I warped back for a second load and was bringing that to my can when Leykk saw my killmail in Maverick Command and asked if I wanted help with loot. I responded with an absolutely and over he came in a cloaky hauler. I went back for a third load and found an Iteron IV trying to scoop loot. So I killed it too.
Still no enemy response.
Leykk arrived and loaded up with everything but the POS mods. I warped him to my safe and he took the can contents too. Back home we went; I gave Leykk some of the loot and thanked him for his help. Nice spoils, for a couple hours of sneaking. I am now training for Curse/Pilgrim. Plan to do more solo work with those ships, as Falcon is pretty limited in solo capability. Didn't stop me from having fun with it.
That is all.
